"I am totally opposed to the proposals for the SDL of Mendip Spring/Churchill. The Local Plan 2036 consultation for Mendip Spring/Churchill Garden Village (4.2) is premature. It is not appropriate for North Somerset Council to conduct a consultation when very significant issues have yet to be addressed through the joint Spatial Plan (JSP) process and formal examination. It is wrong to predict or presuppose the outcome of the JSP examination by the Independent Inspectors." ALSO

Houses should be built near to the jobs in Bristol. Mendip Spring/Churchill SDL is 15 miles from Bristol (the main source of employment)Transport infrastructure is environmentally damaging.

  • Increased use of cars puts a significant, unnecessary and costly strain on existing transport infrastructure.
  • Pollution - impact of a significant increase in car journeys to and from Bristol where there are already very significant air quality problems.
Opposed to the proposals for the Mendip Spring SDL - consultation is premature.
